I don't know why there is still excitement for Psycho Pass,it had an amazing first season but after that came a really mediocre movie then a horrible S2.

Also, why would they use these S2 characters? They're just horrible, kill them and just disregard that entire plot.
The bloody movie should've been the second season, it wasn't great but it wasn't as terrible as the s2 we got.

I was wondering why I hadn't seen the announcement, so it was here, I'm looking forward to the new Psycho Pass movies.

Kabaneri S1 was really bad but I hope the sequel will make up for it. Also, what's this about having to play a game in order to get the story in the movie? Did I read that part correctly? If so, that sounds retarded, for lack of a better word.

Why is Psycho-Pass still a thing after that horrendous second season?

Two seasons, and then a movie, and now three more movies? Why is it so popular?

So we have to play the Kabaneri game before the movie? That sounds lame..

Wotaku ni Koi wa Muzukashii looks bad

Banana Fish, Psycho-Pass and Kabaneri new movie looks good

The lineup for their end looks rather okay-ish. Nothing too standout but the least I'm pretty intrigued is the Psycho Pass movie... well, you might get the jist that I don't like Psycho Pass as a whole.

I wasn't expecting more Psycho-Pass but I'll take it. Unfortunately though, it's most likely not going to be anything like the first season, so I won't hype myself up too much.

Lol, first Psycho-Pass movie will be a hard watch since it will revolve around the worst characters from the series XD

Kabaneri? Wasn't noitamin A a programmation supposed to bring out anime for a larger public? o_O
Between those kind of series with very specific appeal and the number of sequels, it seems rather focused on pleasing the limited "anime audience".
